New Balance x Burn Rubber Ltd. Mt580 “Workforce”


As a company with its own domestic manufacturing roots in the Maine communities where many of our shoes are still made, we’re excited to work with Burn Rubber to celebrate the equally resilient people of the Detroit community. The WORKFORCE pack is a follow-up to our limited MT580 collaboration from 2010, featuring two shoes – a “Blue Collar” shoe in black and orange (available February 2012) and a “White Collar” shoe in black and khaki (available March 2012).

Each design features the attention to detail characteristic of our collaborations with Burn Rubber, including the iconic Chef hangtag, and the Burn Rubber branded laces. Burn Rubber co-owner Rick Williams notes, “This is our way of showing that we notice and appreciate what these men and women have done for our (Wayne) county.”

“These people are not just workers to us,” continued Williams. “These people represent our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends.”

These will dropping this Wed. Feb. 15th, 2012. But supplies are extremely ltd. so don’t sleep on these.
